The job of manager is the riskiest one in the world of modern football.
Club managers are under constant pressure to deliver results, and one might feel sorry for them considering the constant criticism and the job insecurity they have to live through.
But when you look at the wage packages of some of these managers, your feeling of sympathy of them might turn into jealousy.
West Ham hierarchy made him one of the top-earners in the Premier League this summer. He has certainly lived up to his billing and has led the Hammers competing for the European places in the league.
4. Manuel Pellegrini (Manchester City): £4m/year
He signed a new contract worth £4m/year last summer. He might not stay at City beyond the summer, but for now, he is one of the top-earning managers in the Premier League.
3. Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool): £7m/year
He arrived at Anfield amid many expectations this season. He signed a three-year contract with the Reds, and the value of it proves how much faith Liverpool owners have put in him.
2. Louis Van Gaal (Manchester United): £7.3m/year
He arrived with a reputation, but the fact that he is second in this list will surely make some United fans mad. He is clearly not living up to his standards at the moment, and he soon needs to change things at Old Trafford if he intends to stay at the club beyond the summer.
1. Arsene Wenger (Arsenal): £8.3m/year
The fact that Jose Mourinho is gone from the Premier League, for now, and Guus Hiddink is not on a long-term contract puts the Arsenal man at the top of our list.
No other manager enjoys the same amount of power that Wenger has at Arsenal. He basically runs the club single-handedly and is much more than a manager for the club.
